There has been no specific research on witnesses opinions of their treatment by Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) Merseyside. However, data is available to all the criminal justice agencies in
Merseyside from the Witness and Victim Experience Survey (WAVES) commissioned by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform.
The WAVES survey has been designed to measure local and national victim and witness satisfaction with the Criminal Justice System (CJS). The survey involves telephone interviews with a number of victims and witnesses from each of the 42 local criminal justice board (LCJB) areas and provides important information to drive improvements to services and support for victims and witnesses.
In addition to the WAVES survey, the LCJB in Merseyside is proposing to commission its own victim and witness survey, which will provide additional local information for the various CJS agencies to act upon.
|Financial year||Total volume recycled (tonnes)|
The only type of waste recycled by the SFO for the financial years 2003-04 to 2006-07 was paper. In May 2007, the SFO began the collection and recycling of cardboard, plastic, aluminium and glass. The figure of 42.90 tonnes for the financial year 2007-08 includes these types of waste.
The total volume of waste produced by the SFO in the financial year 2007-08 was estimated at 70.99 tonnes. The proportion of waste recycled by volume is therefore 60.43 per cent. This far exceeds the sustainable operations target of 40 per cent., set in June 2006.
The SFO does not have accurate data for the total waste produced for the financial years 2003-04 to 2006-07, so it is not possible to calculate the proportion of waste recycled by volume for these years.

Members and staff in (a) 1 Parliament Street, (b) Norman Shaw North, (c) Norman Shaw South, (d) the Palace of Westminster, (e) 7 Millbank and (f) Portcullis House in each of the last three years for which information is available.

Mr. Maude: To ask the Chairman of the Public Accounts Commission pursuant to the written ministerial statement of 16 December 2008, Official Report, columns 111-112WS, on guaranteed minimum pension contributions, what the timetable is for the National Audit Office review.

Mr. Grieve: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department for what reasons the latest available figures on the number of antisocial behaviour orders issued in England and Wales relate to the period to December 2006; and when data on antisocial behaviour orders issued after that date will be published. 
Mr. Alan Campbell: The data on antisocial behaviour order (ASBO) is based on information supplied to the Home Office by courts. This information is compiled by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) for the Home Office.
ASBO data undergo extensive checking and a rigorous quality assurance process to verify the accuracy and completeness of the data they contain. Since December 2006 ASBO data has been published together with data on all the antisocial behaviour tools and powers collected
from Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) in an annual survey. The publication date of the ASBO data is determined by the complexity of this exercise and timing it to coincide with the CDRP survey.
Mr. Alan Campbell: The latest available information on the number of ASBOs issued goes up to 31 December 2006. ASBO data is broken down by age group 10 to 17 and adults aged 18 and over, and by gender. The available information is shown in the following table.
|N umber of antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) issued to males aged 18 and over, at all courts in England and Wales in each year, 2002-06|
1. Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the courts and police forces. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.
2. Prepared by OCJR Evidence & Analysis Unit.
As reported to the Home Office by the Court Service.
